Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s 2018 Grid Security Conference, the eighth annual gathering of cyber and physical security experts discussing emerging BES security trends, policies, and lessons learned. The event was attended by over 520 industry and government executives in a three-day session last month in Las Vegas, Nevada.
